I propose to merge this article with the one on the Kermadec Trench, and also with the one on the Kermadec-Tonga Subduction Zone, as they are all part of the same tectonic feature. Tmangray (talk) 16:58, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
I think we need a bit more on this, if anyone has access to sources. Is it known where exactly in the trench the RTG lies? Was retrieval ever intended and would such a thing be possible? Have there been studies to measure radioactivity in the area to see if the thing is leaking? Any well-sourced information would be appreciated in the article.

Is the Apollo 13 mission relevant enough to be mentioned in the introductory part? Imo it is just a minor curiousity, possibly deserving a small note in the end of the article (but not more). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 07:15, 20 February 2018 (UTC)
In the movie Batman vs Superman, the submersible recording had the name of the trench in the caption when Aquaman is seen. Should that be included in this article as a pop culture reference? I ask because several other Wikipedia articles make a point of mentioning them (which is how I ended up here). Thanks. Mrobviousjosh (talk) 10:53, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
No - simply trivial. Vsmith (talk) 11:12, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
Correction to manned dive in 2019Gwyncann (talk) 04:03, 11 October 2019 (UTC)
Article presently states: "On 5 June 2019 Victor Vescovo made the first manned descent to the bottom of the Sirena Deep in the Deep-Submergence Vehicle DSV Limiting Factor (a Triton 36000/2 model submersible) and measured a depth of 10,823 m (35,509 ft) ±10 m (33 ft)."
The words "Sirena Deep" are incorrect and should be changed to "Horizon Deep." Someone made a slip. The depths are recorded in  as the Horizon Deep depths.
